Cleveland Man Likely Faces at Least 30 Years in Prison After He Was Convicted by a Federal Jury on Firearms and Drug Charges

A Cleveland man likely faces at least 30 years in prison after he was convicted by a federal jury on firearms and drug charges.

Tyrone Cammon was convicted on one count of using a firearm in relation to drug trafficking, one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, one count of possession with intent to fentanyl analogues and two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Cammon is scheduled to be sentenced December 12. He is classified as a career offender with a sentencing guideline range of 30 years to life in prison.

Cammon possessed a FNH5.7x28mm pistol and 3.52 grams of fentanyl on April 9, 2016. Cammon used the firearm in relation to drug trafficking and was prohibited from having it because of previous convictions for assault, drug trafficking and other crimes, according to court documents.

Cammon possessed a Glock .40-caliber pistol with a 30-round magazine on November 16, 2017, as well as heroin, carfentanil and fentanyl analogues, according to court documents.

This case was investigated by the Cleveland Division of Police, Lakewood Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kelly Galvin and Scott Zarzycki.
